Posted in: Both parties claim to be ahead in Iraqi election See in context

Japan and Iraq are different. You are comparing Apples with Oranges here. Forget Japanese by culture, heritage, tradition and even genetic makeup are totally the opposite of the Iraqi people, but Japan was under the supervision, guidance and control of the visionary and great Gen. Douglas MacAurthur.

Who's in charge of Iraq? Maliki? Don't make me laugh.

Did anybody ever stop and think "Maybe the Afghans like the 13th century?"

You all over estimate Muslims. I grew up with muslims in both, the US and Middle East, and the majority of these peopele only care for is food to eat, place to sleep, and a little fun at the end of the day.

None of them care about- taking over the world, jihad, politics, advancement, climate. They live for today with yesterday in mind.

Seriously think about it, if a good portion of 1.5 billion muslims or 300+ million Arabs thought like most of you think they think, don't you think things would be a tad worse than they are?

That's exactly how Emperor Hirohito bowed to General MacArthur his new overlord when they first met. But Obama didn't lose, he's not a war criminal!

Posted in: Google's new operating system to take on Microsoft See in context

Let's not hope that this to the OS world was what Tmobile G1 phone was to the iphone, a total dissapointment. Yes, it was meant from the start not to be as powerful/sophisticated as the iphone, but a lot cheaper. Which it was. But that was the problem, people expected more from a company like Google. Today, Google no longer forays in the cell phone market. Same might happen with their OS.

Posted in: Microsoft says Vista buyers to get free Windows 7 See in context

I have a dual O/S on my computer, Vista is my main workhorse, and Win 7 Ultimate to play with. It works great with MS Flight Sim 2003, still have not installed Office 2007 on it yet. If you are going to install Win 7, you will need more than 10GB of HD space just for it.

Posted in: Microsoft says Vista buyers to get free Windows 7 See in context

I'm going to let you all in on a little secret, you can actually download Window 7 Ultimate directly from Microsoft for free! Here's the deal, this free download is called, Windows 7 RC. The RC stands for Release Candidate. It's not the official version that will be released to the public in a couple of months. They're basically using us as Gunea pigs. But I've had it on my computer for a couple of days now, and it's great. Secondly, this RC version will expire June of next year, unless you buy the upgrade.

And here's the link for all those who want to try it out.

Posted in: The Salvation army See in context

"It is a new beginning that honors the mythology of the first three movies. And I think you will see a lot of influence from Japanese cinema in it.”

What proof is there? Cameron never once said he was influenced by Japanese cinema when it came to the terminator.

so Bale said baseball games are comparable to watching a Terminator film. “The excitement audiences feel when watching ‘Terminator Salvation’ is very much like the adrenaline rush you get at an exciting sports contest,”

Baseball is so boring it actually got tossed out of the Olympics.

Posted in: 2 German nurses, S Korean teacher killed in Yemen See in context

I just don't get it, Yemen is so poor and backwards that it's actually considered a 4th world country. The whole terrorists and barbaric tribesmen who roam the country is a given. I just don't get why anybody want's to go there, let alone have a picnic!

Posted in: Nagasaki A-bomb plane co-pilot dies at age 88 See in context

Reason the 2nd bomb code named the Fat Man was dropped on Nagasaki, was to test out differently enriched A bombs. The first one code named Little Boy was Uranium based. The 2nd one that was Plutonium based was supposedly the more powerful bomb was supposed to kill more people. But unfortunately, Nagasaki was literally a last minute choice and most kids were out of school.

In my book, Japan got what the deserve. Next time you start a war, make sure you can finish it.

Doubtable, as far as we know it can be 15,000 feet down the Atlantic. And I don't think those things float or have some sort of tracking gizmo.

Or maybe on the other hand, the guy is a success and feels he has the right to be different. Go for it!
